Today was Pastels on 5th and it was AMAZING! I won First Place People’s Choice again this year - what an honor!!
This is created with soft pastels on the sidewalk - it’s a fantastic event that raises money for my favorite charity Organization, Alternatives to Violence!
This little pudgy pitbull is Daphne - she was commissioned as a surprise anniversary gift and it’s been so fun getting excited with my client as the date draws nearer!
Created with chalk and charcoal in about 25 hours.
The Boston Red Sox winning the World Series in 2013. Matted in Red, of course.
Let me tell you — this was the most challenging test of my patience. I didn’t think I was going to make it and I am SO glad it’s done.
Created with chalk and charcoal on 16x20 gray paper. Start to finish, somewhere over 150 hours.
—P.S. The original was commission so it is sold, but prints are available at my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/201669121/boston-red-sox-giclee-print-ready-to
My view for the day. Jarvis is such a ham.
Number 44 up for the pitch! This is the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
But would you believe this is only half the project? This is part one of a double commission! The next one is the Red Sox winning the World Series in 2013.
This one took about 110 hours and was created with chalk and charcoal on 16x20 Strathmore paper.
Having a super lazy Saturday (best kind if you ask me!)
This is from my sketch journal…that I have been neglecting lately, poor thing.
Hope you’re all having a lovely day!
Late night drawing spree - working on tiny little faces. I’m hoping to finish it this week. I’m 90 hours in on this one. Sooo ready to be done!
This is Duke - An adorably fluffy Golden retriever/Chow Chow mix. He has such a rich blend of colors in his coat and it was so fun capturing that in pastels!
Created with PanPastels & Derwent pastel Pencils in about 5 hours.
Anonymous sent: So - totally jealous of your workspace. But I could never keep it that clean. Is it always like that? Do you have pics of it messy?
Haha definitely not always! Here’s what it looks like today(about a week of ‘Arting’ since I cleaned up last.
Pics don’t do the pastel dust justice though :/ It’s everywhere
